  • Jason Strudwick will be filling in for Theo Peckham.  It will be Strudwick’s first game of the season.
  • Oilers have to dictate the play, and can’t let San Jose take 40+ shots tonight.  Speed thrills, and the Oilers have to all be in fifth gear in order to have a chance.
  • Need another solid outing from Khabibulin.
  • Fun Fact:  When the Oilers score first, they are 2-0.  When they don’t, they have yet to win.

The Oilers will have to by firing on all cylinders in order to stand a chance against a potent San Jose offence, including  crowd pleaser Dany Heatley.

There’ll be a review after tonight’s game.  Promise!

Enjoy the game, and GOILERS.
